True Modesty
Copyright, 1918, by Newspaper Feature Service, Inc.
"Is modesty a virtue or a fault?"
"Neither," said Mildred; "It is a mistake."
The question was asked by Aunt Lois, our suave,
gentle hostess, in the house by the sea, where the sum
mer days are being spent by as many friends as can
get away from war -work for a week each guest glad
of a little bit of heaven to help one keep alive these
strange, uncertain days.
In little squads they come, for week-ends, or a
week, each group giving place to another, after a few
days. For Aunt Lois takes this way of helping the
workers during her own hard earned summer vaca-
The talk around the big round table had drifted or been steered,
her to the social problems that perplex the medical world, and the
lung girls listened eagerly to the frank talk of the young army surgeon
o was explaining the medical horrors of the fight with the diseases of
graced and brutalized mankind.
It was In the first pause In the talk that Aunt Lois, reverting to the
ya of our childhood, had said: "Come, let's talk of birds and flowers!"
The young surgeon, being a well bred man, nodded assent, and as he
d the floor Immediately changed to some safe subject, but the flushed
eeks and bright eyes around the table told how strong was the general
btest against the flat of our hostess.
False Delicacy Cause of Evil?
There Is no keeping down a fanatic, though, and the youngest man
esent Insisted upon resuming the obnoxious discussion by a leading ques-
n aimed at the doctor. He asked if a false reserve and delicacy were
t the main cause of most of the terrible evils which afflict the world.
The doctor gravely bowed his assent, and It was then that Aunt Lois
Iked her question and received the half laughing, half earnest reply of
r niece, Mildred.
Then, in a general gale of laughter, the tea table was deserted.
But that night, after the music and dancing had ended, the feminine
Lit of the house party was gathered in Aunt Lois's big room, laughing and
Lattlng while Aunt Loie brushed her shining silver hair.
"And now I want to say something." said our hostess, in her even,
iar voice. "Please let me tell what I feel and think about this new fad
discussing former forbidden subjects by men, women, girls and boys in
-y and all places. Yes, all kinds of places, public and private, at home,
i street cars, everywhere, the morbid, tainted things of degraded, bestial
e are exploited. I do not believe good comes of it.

of this city It is a medium through which they may exchange ideas
if they so desire, or obtain information relating to this branch of war
Great interest was manifested last
week In the canning of chicken. Very
many of the women attending the
demonstration had "slacker" hens,
that the government is advising them
to kill off . because of the excessive
amount of food which they consume.
Amazement was expressed at the sim
plicity of the canning process involv
ed in preserving this meat from one
season to another.
The jam making Is progressing In
a splendid manner. The younger
folks are finding this an excellent
means of giving expression to their
patriotic fervor. At the second meet
ing of the Junior Food Army last
week the members, after their busi
ness meeting at which they elected
Earl Sullivan, 99 Atlantic street, for
president, made a bushel of tomatoes
and half as much rhubarb- into pre
serves which will later go to the Al
lied hospitals. The young people
took great pleasure in doing this to
help the soldiers overseas. Harry
Georgette Avers gave an excellent
demonstration in the canning of to
matoes. The next meeting of the
Junior Food Army Is scheduled for
Friday, Sept. 8, and all mothers are
urged to give their children an op
portunity of availing themselves of
the privileges and patriotic helpful
ness and wholesome fun that the food
center offers twice a month to the
young people of Bridgeport.
Special attention of housewives is
called by Miss Weed at the Sanford
House that tomorrow afternoon there
will be a demonstration of canning
corn. Their was much interest dis
played the last time corn was canned
and Miss Weed has arranged tomor
row afternoon for the benefit of all
who desire to see it canned again.
Miss Elizabeth Bassick, Mrs. Sam
uel C. Shaw and Mrs. C. B. Doremus
are working to make, the big meeting
this afternoon a success, when Miss
Henrietta Crossman and Mrs. H. O.
Havemeyer speak for the Home Eco-
Lawrence, Lillian Christensen and nomics Committee.
Personal Mention
"I would not bring to the group on the porch, or the mixed assembly
the dinner table, the details of either physical or moral disease. More
an that, I firmly believe that true reserve and modesty are necessary to
eserve the fairest flower of virtue in women and men.
"Yes modesty, which you, Mildred, call a mistake! There are bounds
tilch It is foolhardy to pass. I like to think, when I see two young folks
liking In the moonlight on the lawn, that each Is full of high thought
id respect for the other. Discussing things Jovely, and of good report or
earning, maybe, impossible beatitudes, each of the other.
"I can't endure to think these young people may be thinking horrible,
Larnel-house things, or even speaking them to each other."
"But," said the college-bred Mildred, "there are ugly facts at the very
lots of being; men must be told."
"Men are told, and must be told," rejoined Aunt Lois, "but they need
nt be discussed in general society, or by men with women. Whoever can
ad can learn what must be known to protect life and health. Father and
other and schools still exist, and to them we must look to instruct young
lople about the ugly facts of life. But I believe that no one has to be
agged through the mud In order to learn to keep out of the mud. It is
lough to know that there is mud, and that those who have some sense and
ould be clean must keep out of it.
"I maintain that when social cancers are discussed it should be behind
osed doors, and then with decent reserve.
Genevieve spoke, for the first time: "
"Knowledge is power, Aunt Lois."'
"Granted," returned Aunt Lois, earnestly. "I am not arguing against
howledge of the evils and perils that beset us. But I am at war with
tile talk, constant discussion. In general company, of loathsome things.
ich talk only hardens 'and harms.
"A clean mind Is necessary if you are to have a clean body. There
no telling what evil a stimulated imagination will do.
"There are things which must be known and acknowledged, but pass-
1 by on the other side."

All the talk of the scarcity of velvet seems to have been proven false,
for many responsible persons in the trade, say that there is no scarcity of
his fabric so far as they are concerned. Those, or course, who had fore-
ilght, bought the velvet far In advance of the season when the price was
normal, but the thing whlcb has really happened is the boosting of the
price. This abnormal price has evidently made velvet "scarce" with many.

Babies will rival blue-ribbon cattle
and poultry as the center of attrac
tion at state and county fairs this fall.
According to reports received by the
Children's Bureau of the U. S. De
partment of Labor, children and the
things that concern children are to be
given unusual prominence among the
exhibits as a result of the Children's
Year campaign for better babies. Not
only that but the rather haphazard
"baby shows" of other days will be
superseded at many fairs by contests
that are to be virtually "well baby
clinics," conducted In full accordance
with scientific principles. The utmost
care will be taken to guard the child
ren from the danger of infection and
the babies will be judged by experts.
One of the fairs where the new type
of baby show will be held is the Illi
nois Centennial State Fair, where a
baby contest will be conducted under
the supervision of the State Director
of Public Health. Entries for this
contest are said to have reached an
unprecedented figure as a result of the
Weighing and Measuring Test. The
little contestants will be examined by
child specialists, by dentists, and by
eye, ear, nose and throat specialists.
A consulting service under a physician
experienced in children's cases will be
at the 'command of the parents of
children entered in the contest. Dem
onstrations of proper . clothing and
food for children and lectures on child
care will be given daily for the ben
efit of mothers attending the fair,
and among the exhibits will be a mod
el baby welfare station of the kind
adapted to the needs of a small community.
The weighing and measuring of
children is to be a feature of the
Michigan State Fair, where, as a war
measure, the "better babies" depart
ment is to be given unusual promin
ence this year. In connection with
the test there will be demonstrations
of the proper feeding of children with
the need for economy and for food
conservation kept always in mind.
The newly organized child welfare
department 6f the Minnesota State
Board of Health is to conduct a child
welfare " exhibit at the Faribault,
Minn., fair, and an exhibit of charts
illustrating the care and feeding of
children will have a prominent place
at the East Texas fair. Pamphlets
on child care will be distributed in
connection with the baby contest at
the Kansas State Fair; and the Ken
tucky State Fair is planning a baby
In connection with many county
fairs there is to be a "patriotic play
day" to show the value of recreation
in building up a young America that
is strong and happy in spite of the dis
turbing influences of war time. Tests
of physical efficiency, drills, games
and children's "songs" together with

Commercial laundries according to a
decision of the United States Fuel Ad
ministration, will not be subject to any
national restrictions in the use of coal
at this time. The industry uses large
quantities of coal, consuming approx
imately 1,500,000 tons annually, but a
conference of officers of the Laundry
Owners' National Association with of
ficials of the United States Fuel Ad
ministration showed that fuel conser
vation in this industry could best be
handled locally. Therefore a plan has
been formulated whereby regulations
(or effecting coal economy In laundries
will be entirely in the hands of local
fuel administration authorities.
Investigation showed that, while
many of the larger laundries are op
erated efficiently, taking the industry
as a whole, there is a large opportun
ity for coal conservation.
The recommendations to the state
fuel administrators are that laundries
be asked to overhaul their steam
plants, and, with the advice of. the
state administrative engineer, make
such changes in their plants as will
effect a fuel saving; also, that laun
dries running only part capacity
should consolidate, where-er possible,
with others to secure the greatest
amount of completed work with a
reasonable quntity of coal.
Sokol Hall has been the scene of
unusual activities for several weeks

strauctors have become very profi
cient. It Is expected that an exihi
tion will soon be given for the benefit
of the public. These girls will soon

An automobile carrying five per
sons and driven by Charles Whittlesy,
was prevented from plunging down
the embankment at the 'new Strat
ford avenue bridge yesterday after
noon by the guard railing which was
wrecked, becoming entangled in the
rear wheels.
While the' car practically stood on
end the passengers gingerly climbed
out congratulating one another' upon
their narrow escape. The machine
was then hauled back to the street.
The hood and front wheels were
somewhat damaged, but the car was
able to proceed upon its way with its

Just about 110 years ago Paris was
all agog with excitement over a duel
which had been fought in balloons
for the hand of Mademoiselle Tirevi
who graced the footlights at the Im
perial Opera in the French capital.
The rivals for her hand were one M.
de Grandpre and a M. Le Pique, and
they decided that the only way in
which to settle their affair was to
fight a duel. An ordinary duel would
not satisfy them and they finally hit
upon the brilliant idea of fighting it
out in the air. They ordered two
balloons constructed exactly alike and
at the appointed hour each man en
tered his balloon armed with a blun
derbuss, and at a signal the ropes
were cut and up they went. They
were not to fire at each other accord
ing to the arrangements made, but at
the gas bags. At a half a mile in the
air M. de Grandpre sent a ball
through M. Le Pique's balloon, and
the latter was dashed to pieces. The
other landed safely several hours
later, his honor intact. This duel Is
all the more remarkable in that the
arrangements were made for it, and
the plans laid, by both men without
the slightest ill-feeling for each other.
iary of a Fashion Model
She Learns How an "Art Costume" May Be So Adapted That
It Truly Becomes the Unusual Wearer.
. There are some types of women
who simply can't wear the regulation
fashionable lines. They look as
though the gown was taken off the
shelf and stuck on them, regardless
of their needs. Madam is sensitive
to this type, and rebels against such
persons wearing latest style models.
For example, Miss Snow, who dab
bles in sculpture, is this type. She is
a thin, wiry sort of person, vivacious
and jerky in her motions, and she
wears her hair bobbed. She never
looks her best in anything of the pop
ular smart lines. She must have a
frock built around her personality, so
to speak. Once in a while she comes
in trailing an "art" costume that she
herself has designed, and which- usu
ally makes her look hopelessly old
fashioned and out of key.
Only Madame seems to have the
secret of adapting the "art" designs
with fashionable lines so that the
frock will have a touch of modernism
in it as well as having enough differ
ence to seem compatible with the
lady's unusual individuality.
Usually these so-called "art"
gowns are simply loose. Grecian
robes, and while they look very sim
ple, they require the utmost care in
fitting or they will make the wearer
appear dowdy. There must be just
enough looseness to give a graceful
line to the figure, just enough close
fitting at some other point to make
the gown look trim and built for the
wearer instead of loosely hanging
upon her as if she were an animate
clothes rack.
When Miss Snow floated in the
other day with a suggestion for a new
"art" frock that would be becoming
to her personality, and yet suitable for
street and dressy wear, we gasped.
But Madame, as usual, was calm and
With a few deft touches and sug
gestions she transformed the shape
less design into one of grace that
nevertheless contained a suggestion of
up-to-date fashion. This frock
seems to have a strong character of
its own, for in spite of its simple ap
pearance it is cleverly built and has
many unusual touches.
It is a combination of na,vy blue
and black satin. The waist and pep
lum are of navy blue. The plain, un
draped skirt is of black satin.
From the back of the shoulder de
pends a long panel of blue tricotine
lined with black satin. This gives a
cape-like effect to the dress, which
Afternoon Gown of Navy Blue Tri
co tine and Black Satin
makes it an unusual and appropriate
street costume. This panel is fasten
ed to the back at the neck with black
bone buttons. .
In order to give balance to the
dresi, two sashes are Introduced in
front. They are of blue tricotine
lined with black satin, and are fin
ished with black silk cord and fringe.
They are of equal length, and give
height and dignity to the figure.
The sleeves are in two parts. The
proper part, cut kimono fashion,
with the blouse, is of black satin and
extends to the elbow. The lower part
is of the navy blue tricotine to match
cape and shashes. The upper sleeve
is elapsed with black bone buttons
matching those that are fastened to
the panel In back of the collar.
To contrast with the sober blue
and black of the costume a belt of
gray and black patent leather clasps
the loose waist in front. This cuts
into the otherwise loose lines of the
costume and gives it a rather smart
and dashing touch.
The New Clothes
A Cheruit blouse of rust colored crepe de chine has bands of bead em
broidery passing across a flat vest of flesh-colored chiffon. The bands dis
appear under the blouse fronts anad emerge through slashes about an inch"
beyond the edge, the series of tabs thus formed flanking the cross-bands
on the vest.;. This Cheruit blouse falls to the hip and the flesh-tinted vest
extends several Inches below the waistline, giving a very graceful, long line.

When some men are asked what
they did to help win the war, they will
be able to say that they sat around
the hangouts and demonstrated to the
satisfaction of the loafers how the war
could be won if they were only run,
ning it. - '
Sheer silk crepe, or crepe Georgette as It is popularly called in
this country, is by far the most popular blouse material of the
season when the question of a semi-dressy blouse is involved.
And it is surprising how many brown blouses there are, or blouses
showing combinations of brown tones. Only lately dark blue
blouses, combined with beige or tan or brightened with bead em
broidery in color, showed their popularity by their superiority in
numbers, but it seems to be the brown or brownish blouse for au
tumn, and blue most take second place.
Brown silk crepe is embroidered in paler brown or old ivory tone, and
the collar and chemisette repeat the tint of the embroidery. Then there
are coffee-colored chiffon waists with soft cafe au lait trimmings, and
dozens and dozens of beige chiffon blouses very lovely these beige waists,
but there are too many of them to make them safe models to buy except

tained by inserting stenciled motifs in chiffon blouses, the stenciled pat

trasting shade of chiffon.
